NOT BABY EINSTEIN:

Syria backs a nuclear Iran (Patrick Bishop, 20/01/2006, Daily Telegraph)

Syria yesterday backed Iran in its nuclear confrontation with the West as their leaders met in Damascus in a defiant show of solidarity.

The Syrian president, Bashar al-Assad, welcomed Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and said the Iranian leader had the right to acquire nuclear technology for peaceful purposes. In turn, Mr Ahmadinejad asserted his host's right to freedom from foreign interference.


His old man, an even more reprehensible creature, at least had sense enough to back the first Iraq War.

See, I figure this for a fairly savvy play. He must figure that a nuclear Iran will take our focus off of him. I wouldn't be surprised if he is feeding us intelligence on exactly where the Iran nuclear program is based.

They've each painted a bullseye on the other's backside.
